I'm here to chew bubble gum and kick ass.

And I'm all out of bubble gum.

Brother, life's a bitch... and she's back in heat.

I can quote this movie all day.

Well, I'm pretty fond of the original HALLOWEEN and I loved The THING, and I have a soft spot in my heart for CHRISTINE, but if you get a chance, watch John Carpenters PRINCE OF DARKNESS.. Awesome movie.. :bravo:

5. In the Mouth of Madness
6. Assault on Precinct 13

You must have an awesome job.

 

not really, just a perk of today so far.  I had to drive through this massive blizzard for a 12 hour shift but there is some down time that comes with it so I brought my laptop and some blu ray/dvds

For now The Thing, but In the Mouth of Madness sounds so much up my alley that it might go straight to #1 once I get around to it.

Posted (edited)

1) Halloween

2) The Thing 

3) They Live

4) Vampires(James Woods is great in it and a fun as hell movie)

5) Christine 

6) Escape From New York

 

these are the top six I like of his with the exception of Village Of The Damned which I haven’t seen in a while I never had a problem with this guy 

a bunch of the others I saw as a 13 year old so I may have to rewatch some of them as an adult.
